Fresh Eyes on Old Books #18 by Dan!

Whoa, it’s late on a Sunday and I’m late with the reviews.  How responsible! Let’s do this: Wonder Woman #169 from 1967 So there’s this Crimson Centipede right?  Multitude of arms and legs, so on so forth.  Nineteen sixty-seven was a freaking genius time.  This villain carries guns in his right hands, and stolen money in his left, so what’s not to love?  Add to that the fact that this guy also uses those arms to run super fast.  I can’t make this kind of genius up.  The art is kinda terrible, but in one of those “I’m looking at … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #18 by Dan!

It was an interesting light(er) week, so I’ll probably frustrate some people with my picks.  But that just means you’re reading, and we know I only do this for a reaction… Let’s do this! My Top 5 (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Punishermax #11 Writer: Jason Aaron Artist: Steve Dillon The more I read this, the more angry I am at Ultimate Avengers for delaying this story art.  Steve Dillon is a comic genius, and is one of (if not THE) best artists Marvel of DC has to offer.  Add to that that Jason Aaron is transferring his … Continue reading

My Top Five (The 5 Best Comics of the Week) Thor the Mighty Avenger #8 Writer: Roger Langridge Artist: Chris Samnee And with this, the best comic that none of you were actually reading comes to a close.  I don’t even know what to tell you guys.  This was probably one of the best books on … Continue reading

The Latest and (Mostly) Greatest #12 by Dan!

All right folks, it’s a Saturday morning, so you know what that means!  Review time! My Top Five (The Five Best Comics of the Week) Black Panther: The Man Without Fear #513 Writer: David Liss Artist: Francesco Francavilla This book was surprisingly awesome.  As was the case with Spider-man during “One More Day”, maybe Shadowland will lead to something much more fun.  Black Panther shows up fresh of his last failed series (has that been six?) to be a street level fighter on a quest for personal redemption.  He’s abandoned his family and kingdom to try to reconnect with the … Continue reading
